But fundraiser Peter Pierce is motoring his gleaming red Triumph to just south of the Arctic Circle in an epic journey for the Parkinson's Disease Society.

Mr Pierce, a member of the Swaffham Lions Club, set off from Norwich yesterday on his 6,000km trek via Holland and Denmark to Mo i Rana in Norway.

The round trip over eight days is in memory of his friend, Les Gower, who died after a long struggle with the disease in 2007.
